I think this is an excellent acquisition. Pop will set him straight.
i totally agree.
other than a high percentage 3 point shooter, Barry wasnt even close to the player he was in previous years.
not to mention that the guy is 37 years old, his whole 7 ppg wont even matter to SAS.
sure his D was above average, but on a spurs team that thrives on Defense, I'm sure Salim will pick up some new techniques, and wont get left in the dust.
I like this pick up for SAS, they get a young scorer who can come off the bench and provide a lift for them when called upon.
MAnu will start and they need a player who can come in and score.
I dont know if Salim will turn out to be that guy - only time will tell. but i know Barry wasnt going to be that guy.
